The following figures are presented to Republicari voters, who may, at this' time,
be considering whether or not, on November 5th next, they will vote a STR AIGHT
PARTY ticket or a SPLIT TICKET. Four years ago NORMAN WATKINS
was DEFEATED in his run for Supervisor by the votes of the 3d, 4th and 5th Pre
cincts who SPLIT THEIR TICKETS. -
The normal Democratic vote of thess precincts may be considered the vote cast
for Ferri for Mayor as follows:
5 th Precinct
. 5. - v...4 ' ' ' V " .,
Total Democratic Strength 202 votes
for McGlellan and
- -' ' V-A'-:.''::.vt.-h'. .4.',-;-' 'i -.':.
irfthe same prectocts 3$aisas follows:
Total Democratic Strength : 202
Republicans voting for McClellan 186
The vote in the whole county for Watkins and McClellan was as follows:
McClellan .V 2492
McClellan DEFEATED Watkins by 167 votes
Now since Watkins LED thei supervisorial ticket in the 3d. 4th and 5th Precincts
it is reasonable to assume that the Republicansin those precincts wanted HIM elected in
preference to any other candidate, and yet the figures show that the Republican votes
cast for McClellan were really the means of DEFEATING Watkins.
Now, on the eve of another election5 day there is talk of Republicans splitting the
SENATORIAL and SUPERVISORIAL rickets, but it is hoped that a study of the
above figures may cpnvince them that the SPLIT TICKET is often the means of
DEFEATING the CANDIDATE or CANDIDATES best qualified and whom
they MOST DESIRE TO ELECT.

of his own party, Edwin H. Paris.

supervisors will be composed of seven

A report was circulated that Bart

Bartlett said today that he had noth
ing to do with the card and declared
that he is supporting Paris with all
of his strength. "1 went so far as to
tell tbe Manoa voters last Saturday
night that if they couldn't vote for me,

of him," said Bartlett frankly today.
